Earth Gets Its First Look At A Black Hole

  • The world it seems is soon to see the first

And while its 55 million lightyears away, we now have a picture of what these phenomenons look like.

There are two types of black holes, the garden-variety black holes, which are 20 times bigger than the sun and the supermassive black holes. which are at least a million times bigger than the sun. "The strong gravity - the "event horizon" - of black holes create a dark shadow with a distinct shape where no light can be seen".

Black holes are monstrous celestial entities exerting gravitational fields so vicious that no matter or light can escape.

Black holes, those so-called event horizons from which even light can not escape and all known laws of physics break down, have always been fodder for the imaginations of science fiction writers and Hollywood producers.

The image, which has been praised by scientists as an "amazing accomplishment", was captured by an global network of radio telescopes called the Event Horizon Telescope, according to NASA. It was Albert Einstein that first theorized that objects like black holes might exist, and further research suggested that they were actually fairly common in the universe, even though no human had never seen one.

"As long as they have not been swallowed by the black hole, the material can be detected".

NSF director France Córdova will be speaking at the press conference to be held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC at 9 am EDT (6.30 pm in India).

"We have achieved something presumed to be impossible just a generation ago", said astrophysicist Sheperd Doeleman, director of the Event Horizon Telescope at the Center for Astrophysics, Harvard & Smithsonian. Eight radio observatories on six mountains in four different continents observed the Sagittarius and Virgo (where Messier 87 is located), galaxies in April 2017.

Though both exciting and surprising, the photograph closely matched the theoretical predictions of black hole experts and the computer models they've designed.

This person, who works for Firefox, saw the Firefox logo in the black hole. But the most important part of this photo is where there is no light. But the picture wasn't nowhere near as sharp as the depictions of black holes you've seen in movies such as "Interstellar."
